Maxwell Rosenlicht, Introduction to Analysis, Dover publications.
We plan to give a self-contained course in analysis, covering chapters 7-on
of the book. The goal of the course, aside from analysis, is to
learn what is a mathematical proof, and how to present it.
For more details, see
WHAT IS A PROOF? See
a note by Chris Heil.
Homework will be due on Tuesdays, collected in the beginning of the class,
and returned back to you the following Tuesday. I will not be assuming that
you know how to think, write and present a mathematical proof, but achieving
this by the end of the semester, will be an important gain for the class.
You are welcomed to work together, but please write down your homework
separately . Please staple your homework, and write clearly, each
problem on a new page. The two lowest homework grades will be dropped. Any
missed homework will be counted as zero.
There are two in-class midterm exams on Thursday February 22 and March 29.

conflict, I need a two week advance notice to accomodate your
